Integrating with Slack

FireHydrant's Slack integration enables you to fully interact with our entire incident response platform. This allows your engineers to stay in Slack while still leveraging all of the automation FireHydrant provides.

Here are just a few of the things you can do from Slack when you integrate it with FireHydrant:

  • Create a new incident
  • Add a note to an incident
  • Set the incident impact
  • Update an incident
  • Assign a role
  • Resolve an incident

Step 1: Connect your Slack workspace

To connect your Slack workspace:

  1. Go to FireHydrant's integrations page and click Connect Your Workspace.
  2. Follow the link to install the Slack app.
  3. Verify that the FireHydrant workspace is selected from the drop-down in the top right corner of the Slack installation page
  4. Follow the Slack prompts. That's it! Now you'll be able to run any of the commands that Slack uses.

After you set up the integration, we'll automatically link your Slack account to your FireHydrant account.

Note: Other users must individually link their Slack account to their FireHydrant account by following the instructions in the next step.

Step 2: Instruct other FireHydrant users to link their accounts

Additional users in your Slack workspace who want to use FireHydrant commands from Slack must also link their accounts by following these steps:

  1. Run /firehydrant link in Slack. Slack displays a link to the page in FireHydrant where Slack accounts can be integrated.
  2. Click Link My Slack User. The integrations page in FireHydrant opens. 
  3. Click Link Account. The page that opens describes permissions that will be enabled in FireHydrant.
  4. Click Allow. This completes the integration!

Without linking a Slack account to FireHydrant account, user can only run the /new, /help, and /link commands.
